ISAAC VACUUM - To the limit

They still exist: the real insider tips, even from Germany! Isaac Vacuum from Krefeld is definitely one of them. The influences of the quartet are manifold, although they all form a splendid symbiosis on the debut album "Lords". The heavily grooving basic structure connects the band with modernjent-, sludge- and even stoner-elements. Various atmospheric parts and soundscapes are borrowed from postrock.

MOGWAI: "Even if we're quiet, we're loud."

Bands like Mogwai never get quiet. Even if they fall silent for a few years between their albums, their Walls of Noise always echo longer than they could hold themselves back. Their return is always furious. Twenty years ago they published their studio debut "Mogwai Young Team". With the new work "Every Country's Sun" the British post-rock greats return to their starting point. And at the same time expand their combat zone.

GENTLE GIANT - Brothers of Muts

For ten years Gentle Giant kept the progressively oriented part of the rock world in suspense with their extraordinary cosmos of sound. The sextet around the brothers Derek, Phil and Ray Shulman - all of them gifted singers, all of them gifted multi-instrumentalists - was between 1970 and 1980 no experiment in the spectrum of classical music, rock, folk or pop too daring not to get involved with it.

BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION - Four wins!

Everything back to the beginning! Five years ago, Glenn Hughes exploded just over a kilometer away from the Cologne hotel where the interview on the current record of Black Country Communion takes place. At that time he promoted their third album "Afterglow": Hughes made a fuss about the fact that nobody else in the band was comfortable talking to the press and that there was no tour either. The result: Joe Bonamassa and his manager Roy Weisman pulled the rip cord and pushed BCC onto the siding. But now the quartet is back, with the best team performance since their debut.

Josh Homme from the QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE wants to grab his fans and yell at them

He produces the Arctic Monkeys, tours with Iggy Pop, composes for Lady Gaga and has something of a John Wayne of rock music: Josh Homme, a tree of a guy with a penchant for hard sounds, concentrated idealism and wild experimentation. Attributes that also characterize the new album of his Queens Of The Stone Age. "Villains" sounds very different than its predecessors. Besides, it was created so secretly that even in the internet age nobody noticed it, not even its record company. According to Homme, a proven tactic: "That's how you avoid external pressure," grins the Californian-born.

SIMO surprises itself and the outside world with a radical turn towards groove

No one would have believed JD Simo or his colleagues would have done that. The public had put the band from Nashville into the jam blues rock drawer. Although they were anything but disappointed with their penultimate album "Let Love Show The Way" (2016), "Rise & Shine" is a different, much stronger caliber. It's funky, groovy, soulful, and yet they haven't completely forgotten Hendrix and psychedelic blues rock. The album is already a definite highlight of the rock year 2017.
